The continuous pressing became the most important press-drying process in the manufacture of wood-based panels and a great number of manufacturers have been substituting the conventional batch process by a continuous line. One of the most important and innovative aspects is the understanding of the combined effects of physical–chemical and mechanical phenomena involved. Due to the multiplicity and interdependency of these phenomena, the development of predictive models will permit the… CONTINUE READING
